Gluten Free Homemade Apple Pie Larabars
At the beginning of my gluten free, dairy free journey, Larabars were my to-go food. They were quick, easy snacks that I could eat on-the-go or when I was too lazy to cook. They quickly filled me up and I was amazed at how few ingredients the bars included.
However, as a college student, or any person for that matter, Larabars are a bit expensive at a $1.25 a bar. So I decided, why not make my own? I figured it couldn’t be that hard. And to my surprise, it wasn’t. All you need are five simple ingredients and wha-lah, you have delicious gluten free homemade apple pie Larabars at a fraction of the cost! The recipe above makes about 4 big bars and can be easily doubled or tripled to meet your needs!
1 cup of dates
1 large peeled & diced apple
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1. Peel and dice apple.
2. Place all ingredients in food processor and blend well pausing intermediately.
3. Mixture should be a thick paste.
4. Take mix and pour into tuber ware container or small pan.
5. Chill in fridge for about an hour or until firm.
6. Cut into desired size bars!
